NBCUniversal partner Endless Entertainment lays off seven employees

New York-based studio Endless Entertainment has laid off seven employees as a result of slowing its development cycle down.

As reported by Gamasutra, the studio confirmed that several workers were let go at its Oakland and New York offices. A number of those that were affected have been with the studio for less than a year.

The narrative games specialist partnered with Universal Games in October 2018. Together the pair launched Series: Your Story Universe, a story-driven title that featured contest based on NBCUniversal’s portfolio of film and TV IP.

The game released on mobile in April this year, with storylines from the world of Save by the Bell, Law & Order, The Breakfast Club, Vanderpump Rules and more.

“Today, Endless said a sad goodbye to seven talented team members and wonderful human beings,” said Endless Entertainment CEO Michael Fox.

“The change had nothing to do with their work performance. It’s simply an unfortunate reality of a slow-down in our current development cycle. We would love to work with all of them again in the future and are doing our best to help find new employment for them as soon as possible."
